. with that poll, showing 48% would say today that they would vote for scott brown and 40% saying they would vote for ed marky, i'm declaring him for the winner to be. those numbers compared to the numbers you saw, hillary clinton way ahead of barack obama and that gap was closed. i think it is going to be closeable by ed marky. he has three million raised and ready to spend. >> yes, that gives him the opportunity to get his message out. and even though he has been in congress for 36 years, for 36 years, he has run from one little district in the entire state. this will be his first statewide race. that might explain why a third of the people polled haven't heard of him. he is big on climate change. and so, you know, let's see if your prediction comes true. jump in with me here on this one. you know, i wanted to jump in with you on the tim pawlenty thing. i knew i would be hearing about that tonight. >> i want to know who else is going to jump in. >> my point is scott brown is the current republican senator. he is polling below 50 and when he was running against elizabeth warren who started off n
a great night. >> okay massachusetts, are you ready for another scott brown senate campaign? >> there are so many things we need to get done. >> today i made the decision. >> withdrawing her own name. >> not to continue to be considered. >> she had to remove her name. >> to be the next secretary of state. >> to be the best thing for our country. >> i don't believe she deserves to be promoted. >> i don't trust her. >> this is not going to help republicans at all. >> there are so many things we need to get done. >> most of you want compromise. >> the two sides are talking. >> let's get real. >> let really get real. >> tensions in washington are nearing critical mass. >> here we are at the 11th hour. >> 18 days. >> the republicans sent a letter. >> we made a reasonable offer. >> it is this issue spending. >> let's all take a deep breath. >> voters trust the president to handle negotiation. >> are we back to square one? >> here we are again. >> the president is not serious about cutting spending. >> it doesn't make seps. >> but to give a tax cut to the wealthiest people. >> i ha
when the court declared in brown versus board of education that separate was not in fact equal. and in 1973 when roe v wade was decided, abortion was legal in only four states. given the court's historic inclination to favor expansion of freedoms, even when public opinion is not on its side, it would seem plausible the justices will conform what a majority believe is right and up hold the constitutionality of marriage equality. if this is in fact the result, president obama will guide one of the last remaining civil rights battles to completion. a moment that may come to define his presidency as much as anything he has done to date. similarly on the subject of immigration, president obama has made clear that comprehensive immigration reform will happen in the next four years. stung by rue milluating losses at the polls in november, the gop understands the problems its faces among the young, the brown and the young and brown. the only question is just how long it takes the republican party to come to terms with this. if conservatives are smart they will try to find a seat at the
house of representatives. the debt ceils debacle in the summer of 2011 made by paul brown. in 2011, the paul browns in the republican house had enough power to threaten john boehner's speakership and the full faith and credit of the united states. in 2011, every day was marked with a new headline like this one in politico, boehner tries to tame gop on debt ceiling plan. that article was published on july 27, 2011. the very next day, the house member who was then the republican front-runner for president went to the national press club and actually said this. >> it did not include the defunding nor the repeal of obama care and it also increased the debt ceiling. i couldn't go down that road. so i couldn't give john boehner that vote. john boehner now has a second alternative that you have heard of. i will not be casting my vote for that bill. i cannot. i am committed to not raising the debt ceiling. >> yep, she was the front-runner in the polls back when she said that. in 2011, boehner lost 66 members of his party on the bill to raise the debt ceiling but that was then and this is n
people who vote know on that in the next congress. >> well, senator scott brown, who is not supposed to be in the next congress is still talking about what he will vote for in the next congress because he believes he is poing to get it run for john rkerry's seat. he said he would support an assault weapon's ban. and you could be when it with eye other position. if they keep this visible. hopefully you can maintain this visib visible. this stories are so powerful. because it is chirp, it makes it so hard to go back. we have shown that the nra is losing power fast. >> andjonathan, the president said in december, this will be in my state of the union address. i think we are likely to see somebody in the gallery who has been affected by this kind of murder. >> i think the momentum that joy is afraid is foeing to dissipate actually won't. he has given it more than a month to get them in order so that when he delivers the state of the union address. as you say with the power of e paragraphs in that speech. the power of seeing the parents of one of the slain children or all of them there
't going to go through this again. it's not going to be, you know, charlie brown with a football all over again. and so, you know i understand that there are lots of my former colleagues reporting on the white house who are convinced that the president won't get this through. this is a one-time negotiation. and the white house knows it's going to be too painful. and frankly, too disruptive to the markets. one thing the republicans keep talking about is certainly. and yet, they want the uncertainty of a default debate. it's not going to happen. >> richard and alex, if i can just add to, that we went through this in 2011 with regard to the debt ceiling. the financial markets reacted very badly. most voters and the financial markets blame the republicans. the republicans were the ones who were threatening the full faith and credit of the united states. they don't want to do this again. and if they do try to do it again, if i were the president, i would say forget about it. just raise the debt ceiling automatically. it's not in the constitution. there are no legislative requirements with rega
